French School Supplies

• 09 September 2009













Something happened last week we never predicted…our oldest began the school year here in France. We couldn’t believe it…how in the world have we found ourselves in this situation? How unpredictable life can be. Anyway, off I go to buy a set of school supplies for her three whole weeks here, and then I'll go home and do it all over again for her school back home. Gotta love it!

While cruising through the back-to-school aisle, I decided to scope out “school” supplies that are pretty enough for grownups too. After skipping over all the cheesy licensed backpacks (yes, they have that overpriced stuff here too), I zoned in on these two favorites: jade green pencils and a cherry red notebook. They almost make me want to do math or something. Or not.

p.s. after Jordan's post on French and German school supplies I'm tempted to scope out art supplies now too...or just admire the pretty picture :)

My son is taking French in middle school. I would love to have the notebook, and the green pencils are wonderful. If they were in your shop...I would snap them up! Enjoy your 3 weeks.

Okay. Your life is just way too romantic for us normal people! Can't you throw in a Target run just to make us feel better?

When I went to school there, the Austrians, Germans, and the Swiss had the BEST school and art supplies.

I love the tiny lines on the pages. I used these when i studied French in Paris and love them. I heart France.

I agree that if you had some of these school supplies in your shop I would be snatching some up too.

And can I say that I think you guys are amazing. One day my husband and I are going to have to come stay at your beautiful cottage.
